Chievo 0, Milan 0: Okay Then

I struggled to find words for this match. Milan weren’t terrible, but there wasn’t much that was good, either. Mainly, we were outplayed by 16th place Chievo, so don’t expect wins against any of the teams that are above 16th. By this point in the season, I should see something resembling football, even from this squad. Two highlights for me: Honda’s crossbar assault in the 48th and De Jong’s killer save in the 67th. Bocchetti had a promising match, Bonera is losing his fullback superpowers. On the downside, De Jong is injured again. But on the upside, Montolivo is injured again, so that’s kind of a wash. Except for the Muntari and Essien red alerts. But yeah, other than a clean sheet, another step backwards. Okay then.

Birsa, our ex-, played better than most of our players

I am literally out of words for this one, so I will leave you with my precocious daughter’s wise assessment: “Milan epically failed today.”
